Flo Baby Saline Nasal Spray

Clear and clean noses let your baby breathe, sleep and feed well! Your baby’s delicate nose needs effective yet gentle cleaning. Flo Baby’s unique formula, delivered in micromist form, ensures that your child’s sensitive nose is cleansed safely and gently. Flo Baby’s special bottle is designed to be sprayed at any angle, at the position of comfort of your baby.

Gentle to the baby’s nose

FLO Baby Saline Nasal Spray provides a preservative-free, non-medicated, and sterile solution that can be used safely as often as needed to keep the baby’s nose clear. Flo Baby contains no irritating chemical components and is formulated to closely mimic the body’s own natural fluids making it gentle and will not hurt babies’ delicate nasal tissues.

Sprays at any angle

The spray bottle employs a special system that allows spraying at any angle even upside down and may be used on your baby in the most comfortable position.

No ‘suck-back’ spray bottle

The spray bottle is designed with a no ‘suck-back’ feature to prevent microbial contamination, keeping the solution clean and safe for babies. Every time the bottle is pressed, the no ‘suck-back’ feature prevents outside air, bacteria, or mucus to enter and contaminate the device.

Soft micromist spray

The micromist feature ensures that the solution is delivered in fine particles allowing even distribution in the nasal passages and increasing the moisturizing action of the solution to the nasal cavity.

If symptoms persist, consult your doctor

Gentle Nasal Washing Helps Babies Breathe Better

It is important that the nasal airways of babies are clean and clear of mucus, allergens and other irritants.

Babies are obligate nose breathers and breathe exclusively through their nose on their first few months from birth. By breathing through their nose, babies can feed, swallow and breathe at the same time.

Since babies have tiny nasal passages, even the smallest amount of mucus may cause nasal congestion that can make their breathing sound stuffy and blocked up. When the babies’ tiny airways are blocked with mucus, feeding and sleeping may be disrupted.

The thick and excess mucus blocking the babies’ nose is usually due to hay fever, allergies, cold or other viral infection. The thickened mucus can be thinned by nasal sprays containing isotonic saline solution which resembles the body’s own natural fluids. Saline nasal sprays also help activate the natural cleansing mechanisms inside the nasal passages which clear away mucus and other irritants.

Nasal saline spray for babies may be used as often as needed to provide the following benefits:

     • Cleaning and clearing away excess mucus help increase air flow and make babies breathe easier.
     • Clear and unclogged nose eases breathing and help babies sleep better.
     • Babies get to feed easier bringing convenience to the mothers.
     • Washing away mucus plugs which could be breeding areas for germs helps in preventing infection.
     • Nasal saline spray for babies also provides a handy means of removing snot from the baby’s nose. This is safer than using a nasal applicator or a suction bulb which may be difficult to administer especially on an upset, jiggly baby.

There are available sterile, preservative-free nasal saline sprays that gently deliver the solution in micromist and can be administered quickly at any angle, even upside down.  The nasal saline sprays are handy and easy to carry anywhere especially during travel.

For best advice, a doctor should be consulted.

Go-to Remedies to Relieve Baby’s Blocked Nose

Babies have tiny nostrils and in their first few months, they can only breathe through their noses. Nasal congestion is a frequently cumbersome problem among babies who experience the common cold and who are exposed to air pollutants and allergens and are suffering from viral and bacterial respiratory infections.

Even older babies cannot completely breathe well through their mouths. A blocked or stuffy nose in infants and toddlers may cause disruption in sleep and feeding. This could be worrisome for mothers and this could also impact the whole family.

Here are some easy- to- do tips to help maintain healthy nasal airways and promote natural nasal immune defense in babies and toddlers:

     1. Keep the baby’s room properly ventilated. Ensure that the environment where the baby stays is always kept clean and dust-free. Wash the baby’s blanket, linen and toys regularly.


     2. Use mild colognes, lotions and fragrances for the baby. Mothers and other members of the household taking care of the baby must avoid wearing strong smelling perfumes, colognes and deodorants that can trigger allergic reactions in babies.


     3. To avoid nasal dryness, blocked or congested nose, try a chemical-free and preservative-free nasal saline spray. A nasal saline spray provides a cleansing action and can help wash away excess mucus, germs and other irritants in the baby’s nose.


     4. In choosing a nasal saline preparation for the baby, it is important to consider a gentle isotonic formulation that closely resembles or mimics the body’s own fluids and is not harmful to the delicate nasal tissues.


     5. For easy dosing and administration, opt for saline sprays that can be conveniently sprayed at any angle, even upside down. This allows parents to place the baby in the most comfortable position making the administration of nasal saline spray quick and convenient.


     6. Administer the nasal saline spray 10-15 minutes before the baby’s feeding or sleeping time so that the baby can sleep well.

If the baby has fever or persisting symptoms, it is best to consult a doctor.
